The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 was released back in May 2012, with many users purchasing one up to enjoy the experience of a mobile Tablet, but as it often happens these days, Samsung was behind in announcing an official release for Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean on the device. While many users aren't worried about upgrading the OS, there are a number of enthusiasts and power users who want to keep up to date with the various Android revisions.
